Filemaker on Mac El Capitan 10.11.3

We do most of our work in the Windows environment.


I only have a couple of clients using Macs, and I am really outside my comfort zone working with them.


I am trying to install Server 14 on a MacBook pro 13" with a 128 gig SSD.  Eventually we want to use this as a standby server.


Having overcome the hassle of having to buy an extra connector just to plug in an Ethernet cable went  to install server 14 today.


The machine has one user who is the administrator.  I have previously install a FM14 Client and Team Viewer on this computer but wanted to be sure all the network side was OK  before installing Server.


The installation went well  with account passwords being accepted and no problems with the license key, until I received the following error towards the  completion of the install.


Error Creating Folder 1008:9, -5000 Access denied error.


You do not have enough access privileges for this installation.


The Administrator of the computer does not have enough access privileges.  The local Mac Dealer does not have a clue what is going on.


Can anyone steer me in the right direction?


Thanks in advance
